3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lightly sweet aroma. Light amber. Taste is rather sweet with a touch of pumpkin. No real prominent flavors. Not too bad considering my expectations.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Translucent orange/bronze with yellow-to-clear spectrums at the edges. Mild, subdued aromas of gingerbread and pumpkin bread, with a hint of Belgian or Jacobite Ale spicing. The flavor has some nice strains, more on the pumpkin spices than the pumpkin side, but mild, very drinkable, not at all scary like a goblin or ghoul. Moderate thin palate as it warms. Quite enjoyable. I think this probably gets dinged a bit more than is deserved from the beer itself, because of its provenance.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2006 Pours orangish/amber with off-white head. Aroma is muted pumpkin and spice. Needs to be more up front. Flavor has decent pumpkin and clove up front, fades to nothing rather quickly. Body a bit too watered down. Just average.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured amber-orange with a creamy white 2-finger head which quickly flattens to a thin floater with decent lace. Aromas are bubblegum, spice, and a tad of malt and hops. Flavors are clove, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, a bit of fruity sweetmess, a fair amount of hops, and a malty background. Mouthfeel was thin but cleansing. Little aftertaste. Coming from Coors, it was better than I expected.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Has a pretty decent spicy pumpkin aroma, fruity with cinammon and cloves and cardammon. Light bitter and almost metallic tang, though, which offsets the pleasant pumpkin pie smell. Eggy. Medium-dark orangish amber, clear, with thin foamy off-white lasting head. Has a medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts with a decent amount of sweetness to the malt. Pumpkin pie spices come in as a secondary layer, offset by some eggy bitter custard flavor. The hops are muted, but have a little fruity presence. Finish is a mild bitter pumpkin spice, with some carbonic tang and nutty after taste. Decent attempt, but not one I’d go to again and again.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
nice orange brown body with a creamy thick head. aroma lets you know it is pumpkin right off. pumpkin and spice with some eggy notes. watered down flavor of pumpkin, that is sticky. a lingering sweetness but there is nothing in this that would make me recommend it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lighter orange in color with off white head. Aroma is spicey with a weak pumpkin smell. Notes of the pumpkin are present. Aroma makes this one seem thin. Flavor is rather week compared to other well made pumpkin beers. Pumpkin flavor slightly shows itself towards the end. Some spices present all the way through, but nothing dominant at any point. Watery body without much flava.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2007 Poured a clear amber with a solid amount of carbonation rising and a moderate off-white head. Aroma and flavor both picked up pumpkin pie (pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon). Flavor was rather muddled, picking up some pie spices and fainter pumpkin meat. Almost syrupy through the front half of the palate, and spicy toward the finish. This came across as artificial.. otherwise decent.
